We had a rough summer. I had to work really hard to keep my Robin healthy.
I’m happy to report that everyone is doing well now, even our Upstairs Human, who is actually Robin’s mom. We were worried about her, but she’s doing find again, thanks to the humans’ cool, cat-loving doctor, and a lot of other people who helped out.
Robin has been working too hard at her human work to help me much with my writing, but we have been doing a lot of research. We’ll tell you more later about the project Robin and her students researched this summer.
For now, I want to make sure everyone knows that the work I, and my fellow pampered kitties, do stands up to scientific scrutiny.
Research published in September found that women who have pets, specifically cats (rather than dogs), have a lower risk of dying from strokes and other cardio-vascular events than non-pet-owning humans. Researchers aren’t sure if the effect comes from activities with the pet, human personality, or stress-relieving that comes with companionship of a pet.
All I have to say is, I’m doing my part.
